Eggless Vegan Mayonnaise Recipe

User Rating 2.5 Star Rating (13 Reviews)


Eggless Vegan Mayonnaise Recipe
This homemade eggless vegan mayonnaise recipe is made with lemon juice, soy milk, and a bit of salt as well as oil, which is what whisks together to give it that thick and creamy mayonnaise texture.

Be sure to follow the instructions carefully and slowly add the oil just a tiny bit at a time in order to get it to thicken up properly. As you can see from the mixed user reviews, this recipe works best if you add the oil just a bit at a time.

Enjoy your homemade vegan mayonnaise!


  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp mustard
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil


Put all the ingredients except the oil in a blender. Blend on the lowest speed. Gradually - one drop at a time - add the oil until the mixture starts to thicken. Continue blending until thickened and smooth. Transfer to a jar and store in the refrigerator.

This is a Peta recipe, Guest bigrain

I have had this recipe since PETA published it in The Compassionate Cook in 1993. It's outdated, not that it ever was great to begin with. A better alternative is to do a search for a cornstarch-based, cooked mayo that calls for tofu. You'll get good consistency and a shiny finished product if you don't cook it too long.
